Dr. C. BELL TAYLOR 

ON THE 

RIGHTS OF ANIMALS 

''Hoits Daily Guardian/' 1st April, 1908. 



" I have long contended that if we are to improve at all 
it will be mainly by way of the recognition of rights, not only 
the rights of men, women, and children, but also the rights 
of those poor relations of ours whom we call animals, and to 
whom we owe so much of our enjoyment of life, so much of 
our well-being, so much of our prosperity, and but for whose 
cheerful and willing aid the business of the world could not 
be carried on ? It is true, and much to be regretted, that 
we are compelled to kill animals for food, and also in self- 
defence, but we are bound in all honour and by every law 
to make such killing as swift and painless as possible, and 
nothing, absolutely nothing, can justify deliberate, cold-blooded, 
and prolonged torture of any of them. It is pretended that 
animals are not tortured, and that vivisection is not cruel. 
I protest that they are tortured and that vivisection is cruel 
— cruel beyond conception to the WTetched, mangled, tortured 
victims, whose pangs might move the devil himself to com- 
passion, cruel to the men and women whose peace of mind is 
destroyed, and whose faith in God is shaken, by knowinjr that 
such things are going on unchecked around them, and cruel 
to the young candidates for a noble profession, who are taught 
that the portals of scientific medicine are, like the gates of 
hell, the avenue to every species of cruelty and abomination 
the mind of man can conceive. When I was a student in 
Paris they used to perform 64 operations on the same living 
horse. It does not seem possible, but it was accomplished 
by relays of studemts eight at a time, who operated on seven 
horses every week, from- six in the morning till about the 
same time at night. The tail was docked off in segments. 



the eyes excised, the ears amputated, the bladder cut open, 
the airteries tied, the nerves excised, and every inch of the 
body fired. 

'' A little chestnut mare, worn out in the service of man, 
had unfortunately survived the numerous tortures of the day 
and no longer resembled any creature of this earth. Her 
thighs were cut open, the skin torn away, ploughed through 
with hot irons, harrowed with dozens of setons, the sinews cut 
through, the hoofs torn off, and the eyes pierced; in this 
blind and powerless condition the miserable creature was 
placed amid laughter upon its bleeding feet to show those 
present who were operating on seven other horses what human 
skill could do before death would release their victim. No 
anaesthetics w^ere used. I was horrified, but was told it was 
necessarv. ' So spake the fiend, and with necessitv, the 
tyrant's plea, excused his devilish deeds."
